If he shows consistency, then I would definitely say he has potential. I just don't see that happening at this point. But, he's only played 2 games, so we gotta give him some time.

I'll give him his chance before running him off. With that said I would like to add another PG.
After the Alabama game which revealed the need for a good ball handler to get the ball up the floor and move it thru traffic, I'm not worried about his shooting.
If he can handle the ball without turning it over he'll help this team.

Stats say he's very active out there. Ass/To is 3.

2012-2013 Stats Thru 3 Games
Category * 30 Stats
Pts 9.34
3Pts 5.90
Ft-Pts 0.98
Assists 1.48
TOs 0.49
ORbds 0.49
DRbds 2.95
Blocks 0.49
Steals 1.48

His rebounding will get better.

That what I've been saying the past 2 months. He may not be a star, but if he can play defense in the quick guards, and bring the ball up the floor quickly without turning it over, he's worth the scholarship.

Vanderbilt had offered and Alabama was close to, those teams typically have good guard play, so maybe their evals were good.

Not overly impressed? Were you expecting MJ?

It's looking like he's gonna be a 20 minute 7-8ppg this year. Who predicted/expected that before the season began?

Yeah. I thought he'd play but Yemi type minutes.
Anxious to see if he can bother Poythress Tuesday.

He's a very smart player. I can see why CCM picked him up.

It's weird, and many won't agree but...

Seems like Cuonzo likes the high IQ effort players: Reese, yemi, Moore...but he's stuck with some talented dumba$$es in golden and hall who just don't play smart. What those 2 gain in talent they lose in basketball IQ, where it's the complete opposite with the other 2.

This team is in desperate need of a solid PG, right now golden is killing them, and I've been his biggest supporter.

I have to admit I was impressed by Reese stepping up and knocking down that 3 in a tight situation in the second half at Rupp. There are a lot of older guys who wouldn't have the guts to take, much less make, that shot.
